this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and i said you should put shooting at the top of the list. we have been through aurora, the sikh temple, the oregon shopping mall, think about this, this is before we got to sandy hook. in newtown. we'd had a time of ab
the trauma of the sandy hook massacre, the urgent call to limit easy access to guns has exposed the american cultural divide over firearms. the president has offered 23 executive actions to strengthen background checks and better address mental hent and called for armed officers in schools that want them. but it's fraught with danger for the president. there are 20 democratic senate seats up for grabs in 2014, including in the gun-friendly states of arkansas, alaska, iowa, colorado and south dakota, which suggests any gun control measuresville to be a compromise. >> everyone's trying to divert from the core issue. there is a huge consensus in the country, including a vast majority of valentine republicans that things like assault weapons, high-capacity magazine, universal background check, making progress on mental health -- these are things we should and can do to help reduce gun violence. >> this is something we can do something about -- mental health, information sharing, background checks and other things as well, but it has to be a plan that could work or the president won't get it done
now. they have taxes raised and passed the sandy relief on a bipartisan vote and they will pass immigration reform and deal with the debt ceiling. he broke the republicans's arms on that. >> still got the votes. >> sandy relief who will disagree on that? >> a lot of of people. remember how chris christie was screaming? >> screaming at -- >> house republicans. >> right. >> what happens is up until now you had something called the hastert rule in the house. republicans stood together. that has been demolished in the last month. it's going to continue to be demolished when votes on immigration comes up and solving the sequestration money comes up and also on the budget. the real test for the president is whether he is going to go up against his own caucus to do things on medicare social security and a few other issues. >> we are looking at the president on a motorcade going down pennsylvania avenue. every time i look at the inaugural route, i can't help but go back to january 20th 1977 and jimmy carter breaking precedent and stepping out of the car and shaking h
'm glad that he used occasion of the sandy hook crisis to deal with the gun issues. that's -- that killing and -- sandy hook was -- these 20 babies who never had a chance to open their christmas presents, never could see -- something about that that -- a tipping point. yet, illuminates chicago. 32,000 killed nationally. the killing epidemic is huge. i wish it would come to chicago because -- antiseptic new -- the -- >> reverend jackson, we see the chief justice of the united states, john roberts, arriving on capitol hill behind us right now. he will be administering the oath of office to the president for a fourth time. yesterday was the third. twice four years ago. fourth and last time, we should point out. this will be a significant historic moment. >> we are 160 miles from jamestown, virginia, where the slave ship landed. he looks over where lincoln is immortalized and dr. king statue. >> look at that. sonia sotomayor, justice, arriving as well. she will be administering the oath of office. the vice president -- >> since '63 to today, many way it is whole world has change. >> have come
the trauma of the sandy hook massacre the urgent call to limit easy access to guns have met resistance and exposed the divide over firearms. president has offered 23 different executive actions which would strengthen background checks better address mental health and call for armed officers for schools that want them. politics are fraught with danger for the president. there are 20 democratic senate seats up for grabs in 2013 including in arkansas, alaska, iowa, louisiana, colorado, new hampshire and south dakota which suggests that any gun control measures will have to be a compromise. >> everyone is trying to divert from the core issue which is there is a huge consensus in the country, including a vast majority of republicans that assault weapons, high capacity magazines, universal background checks, making progress on mental health, these are things that we should and can do. >> i think we can do something about mental health, about information sharing, maybe about background checks and other things, but it has to be a plan that could possibly work or the president won't get it done
vote and look at the sandy vote. a microcosm. what you're finding there is john boehner willing to break what is called the hastert rule, which is that to pass measures with majority democrats when they really need to be passed. i have no illusions every bill is going to go down that way. and then with the debt ceiling, same thing. i do think there's some evidence that republicans are saying, you know, in part for public image reasons but maybe in part because of good economic reasons, we can't keep whacking away at the economy like this to please our base we ha. >> it's not about the two parties necessarily shifting their philosophical positions or moving together but more of a practical decision by the house leadership to recognize the limits on what they can accomplish with the majority in the house and the limits in terms of the public support for their position. you know, one of the things, chuck, the president used the campaign to do was to try to lay out in front of the public the competing visions for approaches to economic growth and deficit reduction. he feels like he'
is hunting down innocent people, which could be them. you think of virginia tech, sandy hook and they are in close proximity. so they are likely to be hunted down in a classroom or bathroom and killed. so they are not aware at that time that this may be a personal altercation and it's going to be resolved. they have to think they may be close to death. >> sad story. all right. we're standing by for the news conference with the sheriff. we'll give the latest. tom fuentes, thank you. >>> other news we're following in washington, the ceremonies and festivities are over. president obama is getting ready to work on his second term agenda. many republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as
is true is that there is respond to go a crisis and the crisis happened whether it's hurricane sandy, it's gun violence, it's violence, it's gang violence, you need to be prepared and anticipate those kind of acts and be able to prepare to respond to them but more importantly, you have to work to prevent them. >> that's why the recommendations that we put forward really emphasized four key things: being able to expand access to mental health care. you have the situation in new town where clearly the perpetrator there had suffered for some time either undiagnosed or untreated. >> uh-huh. >> that was a major factor that led to that tragedy. >> as well as in aurora colorado? >> yeah. >> or tucson. columbine was also an instance where bullying played significance. increasing the programs and training for educators and students that help prevent violence that help circum vent violent behavior like anti-bullying programs, being able to upgrade school facilities, being able to have security doorstion being able to have buzz-in doors, that infrastructure is par
which was so hard hit by superstorm sandy. they performed at the oscars and they are singing god bless the "usa today." james taylor is performing today. kelly clarkson will be singing "my country tis of thee." and beyonce singing "the star spangled banner." >> it has to be an honor to be selected by the president to sing. thinking about james taylor it was interesting to note if it would have gone differently, he would have been senator taylor. >> he said the right thing. i should do what i love and do what i do best. >> when real estate people talk about location location blair house has it all. margaret brennan is there to show us what's inside. margaret good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. blair house is about location location, location. it's the president's guest house. it's where heads of state come to stay where they come to the capitol. it's also where incoming presidents live until inauguration day. reporters rarely get a look inside, but the chief of protocol took us on a tour. >> welcome to the blair house, the president's guest house. >> t
reform was out of her office especially the response to hurricane sandy. >> john: if she hadn't left the governor's office of arizona, we wouldn't have jan brewer today. >> jennifer: on the west coast, michael, obviously it is early on the west coast. i know that progressives community has got their tvs all turned on to current tv to watch the crowds walking in. but what -- you know, i assume you're in portland for different reasons. >> yeah. i'm in portland for a different reason. as a matter of fact, i'll be in san francisco later today for the rest of our coverage. and i'll see you on "the war room" i'm sure. the whole -- it's funny. yesterday, of course, they were marking the anniversary of roe v. wade. i was walking through this liberal city that i didn't know very well which i've come to like in the few days i've been here. i was walking through and there was a pro-life demonstration there. there was a smattering of people in the middle of pioneer square. not a big number of people there. i thought how ironic that tomorrow we're going to be inaugurating a president who has, aga
in a way you wonder because of superstorm sandy and the amount of money, if you are going to talk about the budget, you have to have this conversation about the climate since these natural disasters clearly are becoming more and more, but i want to point out a quote that barack obama said in an interview five years ago when he was still running for president, and he compared himself to reagan. he says i think ronald reagan changed the trajectory in america in a way that richard nixon did not and in a way that bill clinton did not. the reason i point out that quote. i thought it was an important quote, and it gave you a sense of what kind of president obama wanted to be, and i think you've heard in the maugral address today in the way that president obama believes ronald reagan mainstreamed the conservative movement in the 1980s, that one of the things he wants his president to do is to basically mainstream the liberal progressive movement in the same way, so if the country is, say, center or center right, you can have this argument that when he leaves that he has mainstreamed it and mov
. >> after snowstorm sandy. and being together and working together, republican and democrat. you asked, what i have liked to have more of in the inauguration address, it would have been the spirit that you saw with christie and obama. and i like the fact that after that, republicans, instead of being peeved at him, oh, my gosh, you helped o o eed out th guy, they liked it -- >> well, they were forced. >> i think the most important speech that chris christie has given was at the reagan library, where he talked about compromise and leadership. and he said, that's the way -- it's not complicated, how you get things done. you get things done through compromise and leadership. and compromise has been a totally dirty word inside the republican party here. >> it's strange. something's wrong. >> if you can keep that theme going, it's very important. >> does it begin anew tomorrow. wrap it up with your thoughts on the rnc meeting tomorrow. >> like i said, we want to be successful. and i feel like what you've seen out of the republicans over the last couple of days is a much smarter approach, to focus
boehner, if he wants to get bipartisan vote as he did on sandy relief, he has to be able to drop the hat, and it's personal changes and institutional changes. >> mr. mayor, you run one of the largest cities in the country, san antonio, texas. what can the president do to help? what do you need? >> the president can do what he has began during his first term. two great examples are to collaborate with agencies in his administration. making the transportation department work with the education department, work with the e.p.a., sustainable communicates, promised neighborhoods. to invest in brain power and education, and also lift up neighborhoods at the same time. and to his credit, he's been more collabrative with mayors, i think than we've seen in a long time. so i have a lot of hope for the second term. >> mayor castro of san antonio, texas, and brother joaquin castro in congress, very kind of you to spend a moment with us. >> great to be here. >> the president will be leaving the capitol shortly. he'll go out the east front where members of the u.s. military have been assembled so that
